Public Partnerships

The zdi networks and zdi student laboratories work closely with public partners, such as Schools, cities, Gemeinden or district associations together. Many student laboratories have emerged from a cooperation between a school or a city and a university or a company. For this reason, the majority of the zdi student laboratories are affiliated with a school or university.  

The zdi networks also have the important task of bringing companies and universities together with public partners in order to work together to support young MINT talent in the region.  

Examples of cooperation with public partners:
